of arizonans upset? >> the arizona bill has major problems to it. when i was governor of virginia, some of my legislators and my then attorney general pushed on meet notion we should do something very similar is, basically deputyize local law enforcement to enforce the immigration loss. we agreed it would be a very bad idea for a couple reasons. first, it's not like law enforcement folks have a lot of extra time on their hands. if you tell them they're now going to enforce federal immigration laws you have to tell them what they're currently doing they need to give up. i think they should focus on violent crimes as their top priority. the law in arizona is going to have a negative effect on fighting crime because as soon as immigrants believe that the local police might be their enemy, they are much more reluctant. >> governor, i'm going to have to stop you. apparently we have a sound issue. we have an audio issue and your mike is not working. we're going to see if we can get it back. we're going to run to a quick break for now. if we can get it back, we'll get you back on here in a few minut
